Skincare brands for sensitive skin prone to Eczema

natural skincare for skin prone to eczema
My parents will tell you I was born with eczema, it didn't take long before my skin was covered. My most vivid memory was around the age of 9 or 10 when I was so badly affected by eczema that my skin was infected, I was scratching to the point of bleeding and I was banned from swimming at school. The changing point came with the diagnosis of allergies. As an adult I have small eczema patches but nowhere near the extent I had as a child. Currently my triggers are cold weather, stress and sensitivity to ingredients and of course allergies.

On trend at the moment are Winter Skincare articles and whilst it's important to everyone to look after yourself, eczema management can often be hard work at this time of year. I decided to gather a list of brands that offer products which may be suitable for those of you prone to eczema and other skin conditions. I personally prefer to go down the route of using products without Perfumes, Lanolin, Urea and Paraffin. When choosing a cream made from plant based ingredients it is worth considering Calendula, Chamomile, Chickweed and Oats as these are known for their soothing properties which may be helpful when looking after flare ups. 

Eczema is a fickle beast and we are all different so might take a bit of trial and error but hopefully this list gives you a good starting point for finding suitable products.

Conscious Skincare (I would recommend the Fragrance Free range)
Ere Perez SOS Marmalade (from experience it's the papaya that makes this product soothing)
Fushi (a range of oils and shea butter worth consideration)
Green People (Scent free range)
